Re: Oil leak at water pump fix

Hey guys Im getting ready to change to o-ring and Im a bit confused about the Permatex UltraCopper RTV. Do I put 1/16 bead in front and behind the o-ring or just behind it? how far apart from the o-ring? Looks like the previous owner had sealed it and got a little too crazy with the RTV because it had a lot when I removed the pump.

I hope it works, if not, just replace the pump assy. Mine worked for awhile then start leaking from the internal seal at only 1400 miles.
Gonna catch h3ll for bringing up a zombie thread.

So the internal seal you speak of is the Oil Seal inside the Pump? See link from Babbits: http://www.suzukipartshouse.com/oemp...adb/water-pump

Is so it seems the most viable and long term solution is the entire pump replacement I guess right?

Just narrowed mine down to this area this morning. Got 48,000 on my baby. Orig 2,292!

Re: Oil leak at water pump fix

I know this is old, but I need help, looks like I have the same problem oil leaking from water pump or somewhere in that area, but also I found some coolant leaking from the hose that connects to the radiator, I tided the clamp on that hose and seems to be fine now, but I' am thinking maybe there is a problem with water pump or some problem in the cooling system, maybe some preassure, the bike never overheted, any help?

I think you are saying that you have oil in your water?

The first thing to check is the oil cooler. They crack internally and oil and water can go either way.

Re: Oil leak at water pump fix

I ordered the #9 installed it, still leaked. Did the new #9 with the sealer, still leaked. New water pump, no leak. It's easy enough to do, but the pump is $184.00.

Mine wasn't a drip here and there, it was 2 quarts on the drive in front of work one day.
